I’m not sure what I get for my commission

Before signing any contract, it’s important to know what you’re getting out of it. In this case, we ask for commission on your bookings – and we really believe that what you get in return is worth it. Millions of other partners do, too.


Here’s why.


We’re the world’s number one site for accommodation bookings. Over 1.5 million room nights are booked on our platform every single day – so it really works for a lot of partners, from large hotels to one-bedroom apartments, and everything in between.


You’ll get instant access to the world’s largest online travel community. Our website is available in 43 languages, meaning your property can be seen, booked and enjoyed by guests from all over the globe.


You’ll benefit from a huge marketing operation – for free. We put a lot of effort – and investment – into ensuring you make that connection. Once you start working with us, we’ll market your property via search engines like Google, Bing and Yahoo – not to mention our 17,500+ affiliate partners like airlines and other travel websites where your property will be seen by millions of global travellers.


Our platform is designed to generate bookings. With over 20 years’ experience in the online accommodation game, we’ve put together a team of experts dedicated to making Booking.com as efficient as possible when it comes to securing reservations for our partners. You’ll benefit from all the cutting-edge developments in technology that go on behind the scenes. We’re constantly testing and tweaking the platform to make sure your property gets as many bookings as possible – and the results speak for themselves.


You’ll get benefits outside of Booking.com. As soon as you sign up with us, your property will appear on Google Maps. Travellers looking for a place to stay in your area will find you more easily – meaning more exposure and more bookings, whether that’s on our platform or on your own property website.


We keep things simple when it comes to your contract. You’re in control of your availability – you can add as much or as little as you like. And the commission covers everything, so unlike some other platforms, we won’t surprise you with extra payments for marketing or customer service. Everything’s included in that percentage: the technology, the translation, the marketing, the customer support and the exposure.


All in all, we think it’s a great deal – and a lot of other partners do, too.
